Oh hey, I forgot to post this yesterday, hahaha… And this week had a lot of nonexistent writing. And by nonexistent, I mean I wrote ONE DAY. That was it. This Camp NaNoWriMo I’m really struggling to get anything written, so I don’t know if I’m just going to stop altogether or try to get something done. Maybe if I hit 20,000 words I’ll stop, but we’ll see.
50,000 words total by the end of April 30th.
That’s the equivalent to a 200-225 page book. So my average daily word count goal to reach my main goal is to write 1,667 words per day.
Stats for Week 3
Day 16: 0 words for a total of 17,660 words
Day 17: 0 words for a total of 17,660 words
Day 18: 0 words for a total of 17,660 words
Day 19: 0 words for a total of 17,660 words

Day 21: 0 words for a total of 18,273 words
Day 22: 0 words for a total of 18,273 words
*I’m not including today, April 23rd, as the day is not over yet. Today’s word count will be in next week’s recap.
This Week’s Advice: Keep Going!
I might sound hypocritical here given my own progress, but if you’ve come this far this month in your writing then keep going! We’re almost to the end and your goal may seem far away (like mine), but you can do it! Even if you don’t reach your primary goal, strive to reach a smaller one.
You really wanted to get to a specific scene that you were building up to? Write it. You’ve got your beginning and ending down, but the middle seems kind of funky? Write an imaginary one as filler. Play around and experiment and see what kinds of things you can come up with because even if you can’t reach your goal you’ve still made progress this month and you should be proud of yourself!
This week was a rough one for me and I don’t know that I’m going to keep writing, but I’m going to see what happens.
How was your third week? Have you hit a lull or given up? Or have you soared higher than anything your expected? Let me know!
